Introduction to Neck & Shoulder Tension

Your head and shoulder position throughout the day can attribute to neck and shoulder pain – including the way you sleep.

 

Poor posture will put stress on your muscles and draw your head forward will send signals to the brain that your skull should sit in front of your spine. The muscles in the neck shorten, tense, and increase the amount of stress is put on the discs of your spine.

 

Improper posture strains the spine since it must support your head in an ergonomically incorrect position. The further the head slouches from its intended position, the harder it is on the spine.
